People that have real power will use any and all means to maintain that power.
TPTB have infiltrated all aspects of freedom fighting medias. As with all media now there are, I am sure some disinformation agents here and there.
Whats more, some of them aren't even aware of it (research mind control).
Then again, most mods are like the rest of us just people that come to the table with their own unique experiences, prejudices, likes and dislikes.
For the most part, I think they do a very good job and it's a hard one because of the nature of this site.
I have noticed some forums are closed too quickly and I think a explanation at the end of the forum as to why it was closed would be nice.
Also, some of the newer stuff coming onto ATS seems to me (and it's only my opinion but I'm entitled to it) are getting mainstream stupid in order
to attack more non thinkers to the site.
One last thought: ATS and the other alternative news and conspiracy sites are the last stronghold against the forces of darkness that would prefer the
majority of people remain asleep, stupid and compliant.
Real knowledge is power.
Sites like this will constantly be under attack from both without and within -I haven't watched Fox, CNN or any of the large owned propaganda news
information distributors in quite a while. I come to ATS almost daily to investigate what others are thinking on the "news" we are being
ATS has a wide following, you can bet your money, TPTB have to some extent, infiltrated all levels of this site - they would be stupid not to because
this site is where a lot of intellegent people gather to discuss what is really going on and we're talking thousands of souls each day visit here.
To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without
fighting.-Sun Tzu, the Art of War
Hence that general is skilful in attack whose opponent does not know what to defend; and he is skilful in defense whose opponent does not know what to
attack.”.-Sun Tzu, the Art of War
All warfare is based on deception. Sun Tzu
Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director
of the opponent's fate. Sun Tzu
It is essential to seek out enemy agents who have come to conduct espionage against you and to bribe them to serve you. Give them instructions and
care for them. Thus doubled agents are recruited and used. Sun Tzu
It is only the enlightened ruler and the wise general who will use the highest intelligence of the army for the purposes of spying, and thereby they
achieve great results. Sun Tzu
And make no mistake, we are at war - the question everyone should be asking is with whom?
